Found in Dublin, Ireland at Mulligan's Pub (excellent place too!). Figured this was mid-strength between draught and foreign-extra, thankfully the bartender informed me this was a beer for drivers and gave me a short pour for free instead!

Looks like a Guinness with a tight creamy head, except the body is noticeably a bit lighter and clearer. Not very much aroma, just light roasted notes, as I have come to expect from nitro poured beers. The body is incredibly thin with a decent coffee note that is stronger than in Guinness, but not much else going on. With the low carbonation this beer comes across as having a ridiculously thin body.

Thank heavens I was warned about this beer before I bought a pint as it turned out to be more of a mix of Guinness and water! Meh. Never again, unless I needed to stay sober (and even then maybe just some pop)
